Your Child’s Journey Starts Here

Conducive to Early Development

Did you know that the average child’s brain is 80% developed by age 3 and 90% developed by age 5? The encouragement and development of your child’s learning are paramount to us at Great Expectations ELC. That’s why we follow Arizona Early Learning Standards to foster the development of social-emotional health, language and literacy, cognitive growth, mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts, and physical development. It’s also important that children explore the world around them using all five of their senses. At Great Expectations, we’ve built the perfect environment to start the foundation for a lifetime of learning and enlightenment.
